About Dr Brendan Stanley

Dr Stanley is a specialist consultant Vascular and Endovascular Surgeon with extensive clinical experience over a 20 year career during which he has taught advanced Endovascular techniques to Vascular Surgical colleagues throughout Australia, Asia and South Africa. Recently, as part of a 15 million dollar redevelopment, Healthscope senior management at the Mount Hospital utilised Dr Stanley’s knowledge and experience in interventional surgery to help advise and plan the implementation of the most advanced equipment, high quality imaging systems, technologies and theatre layout requirements to provide the only world class private Hybrid operating theatre of its kind in Perth. Brendan performs 90% of his surgery in this exceptional facility.

Dr Stanley is happy to see both private and public patients with all types of vascular disease. He is a visiting specialist consultant surgeon at Fiona Stanley Hospital where he admits and operates on his public patients. Dr Stanley is a NO GAP DOCTOR. He is a member of the Australian and New Zealand Society of Vascular Surgery ANZSVS) and previously held a position on their executive committee.

Vascular Care WA has our own in-house integrated and noninvasive vascular ultrasound service provided by a highly experienced specialist vascular sonographer, Mr Simon Prout from Sono Diagnostic. 

This service is provided at Dr Stanley's consulting rooms at the Mount Hospital. Having our own dedicated service allows us to maintain the highest quality imaging technology, resulting in accurate diagnosis, planning and management of the patient's vascular condition. Our patients have access to a convenient, comprehensive and accurate specialist vascular diagnosis and reporting system for the management of their venous and arterial vascular conditions to ensure the best health outcomes.

Special Interests

Dr Brendan Stanley has interests in all areas of vascular surgery and is extensively involved in developing interventional techniques for carotid stenting, peripheral vascular disease and endoluminal stenting of thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysms. He was the first surgeon in Australia to perform a branched stent repair of an aneurysm in the arch of the aorta whilst maintaining the blood flow to the carotid arteries supplying the brain and he continues to have the most extensive experience in this area within Australia.

Dr Stanley has a special interest in and has helped develop the technique of fenestrated endoluminal repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms and complicated thoracic abdominal aneurysms. He continues to teach this advanced technique to other vascular surgeons and is regularly asked by colleagues to consult on the suitability of this technique for their patients throughout Australia and Asia. Brendan also provides advance treatment of varicose veins, ulcers and hyperhydrosis.

Dr Stanley is committed to maintaining a strong involvement in the teaching of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery to medical students, registrars, Vascular trainees and other Vascular surgeons.
